Ceviche, Peruvian Cuisine and Pisco Cocktails

Last Friday, I ventured to Soho with a few friends for something a bit different. We decided to try Ceviche, I'm not sure quite how one would describe the type of food... but I guess, Peruvian Tapas would sort of hint at it.

We decided on a selection of Ceviches, which is fish, cooked with Amerillo chilli, tigers milk and infused with citrus. (As it is their speciality we took a risk - and it was delicious.) we also played it safe with some Chicken Tequinos (a sort of deep fried, though not greasy, bite size chicken and cheese tortilla) and a selection of other delicacies. All of which were delicious, and washed down with an array of Pisco Cocktails, the Peruvians national drink.

We worked our way through the list, straying from my usual vodka tonics, they only serve pisco here! One of my favourites I think was the 'Eucalyptus Chilcano,' which consisted of Eucalyptus infused pisco (which must have some health benefits) with ginger ale, lime, and cinnamon sprinkled on top.. It was interesting, rather strong, and with its similarities to a cinnamon swirl danish pastry, made them very easy to drink.

It was the start to a brilliant evening, which involved further cocktails in soho, and Tuc Tuc races down Picadilly. I can strongly recommend a visit, but perhaps worth booking! And don't be tempted to forget pudding, the crispy cookies, filled with chocolate fudge were unbelievable!

Knitted Lingerie....

Loving the shoot 'Call of Duty' in Elle this month. Mixing Lingerie and leather, and even a knitted body. Maybe a great investment for the coming winter months... Quite sexy too... considering it is something your granny might knit!

Spanish Escape

A last minute invite to Spain for the weekend, was just what I needed. I spent the weekend in luxury, and in perfect weather conditions (sorry to gloat!) The villa was simply beautiful, as you can see from the photos below. I ate beautiful spanish food, and lounged by the pool. Beautiful Bottoms shirts were perfect for this! The area we were staying was called Sotogrande, about half an hour from Marbella, so popped down there one morning.... saw some interesting sites, including leopard print and gold sofas, to a bright pink Ferrari, to a dog cot.... costing €2500. Bizarre! 

The Beautiful old indian style door led onto the courtyard and front door to the villa.

The villa had lots of lovely big white sofas and separate seating areas dotted about, perfect for relaxing and reading, and getting some peace and quiet.

The gardens were filled with brightly coloured flowers, I especially loved the lilac of these.

Sipping S. Pellegrino, with ice and lemon, and flicking through French Elle was the perfect way to spend sunday afternoon. french Elle feature so much of Sandro and Maje, two of my favourite shops at the moment. Dreamy.

The interiors were stunning, I loved the print of the rug and sofa, all in different hues of blues and white, contrasted with the pink flowers on the mantel piece.

The small attention to detail of the interiors of the villa, even down to the table decorations made it a Beautiful place to be in. Hope I get invited back! xxx

Thoughts from Fashion weeks...SS13 Trends

With London Milan and Paris fashion weeks drawing to an end... we have decided to glance back over some clear trends that are emerging.

Bight Colours for starters.... Bold and Bright colours were seen on the catwalks from Designers all over Europe, including Diane von Furstenberg, Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wang as seen below.

For our Spring Summer 2012 collection, bright colours feature throughout, with one of our strongest pallets being that of the Sunset collection. See below the Sunset Dress.

Some other trends, particularly interesting to us, were Sheer, silk pieces seen upon the catwalks. Perfectly demonstrated by Stella McCartney, where she had colours, bold, layered under sheers and delicates. (We are fans of this look!)

All this is just making us very excited for SS13. Cant wait for you to see the collection. here is one more picture to give you a little glimpse.
